FN 509 Series of Striker-Fired Pistols Expands with New, Midsize Carry Model and Color Offerings

FN America, LLC is pleased to announce the release of the FN 509® Midsize, a new carry option in the FN 509 series of striker-fired pistols. Additionally, the FN 509 Tactical is now available in a matte black finish. These line extensions further FN’s commitment to offering a full line of options in the FN 509 series that meets all customer expectations.

What truly sets FN products apart is the quality. When customers pick up the FN 509 in comparison to other striker-fired 9mm’s, they instantly notice the ergonomics, premium finishes and price point that is competitive,” noted Chris Cole, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for FN America, LLC. “With the FN 509 Midsize and FN 509 Tactical in black, customers will now have four additional FN options in the 9mm striker-fired category to choose from. We believe that options are always a good thing and we’re proud to provide them to our loyal customer base.

The new FN 509 Midsize pistol is chambered in 9mm and features a four-inch slide and barrel, frame with shortened grip and 15- or 10-round magazine capacity, backward compatibility to higher capacity FN 509 magazines with use of a grip sleeve and fixed three-dot luminescent sights. From individuals seeking a do-it-all range, home defense and carry pistol to law enforcement use as a backup duty pistol or carry model for plainclothes officers, the FN 509 Midsize is the ideal solution.

The pistol also features various upgrades including new sculpting around the magazine release for easier activation, a flatter-faced trigger for a more controlled trigger press and improved slide stop lever and texturing. FN 509 Midsize MSRP $649.

The FN 509 Tactical, the industry’s leading optics-ready 9mm striker-fired pistol, is now available in a matte black finish. The pistol features the company’s patent-pending Low-Profile Optics Mounting System™ that enables the platform to accept more than ten commercially-available miniature red dot (MRD) optics that co-witness with the suppressor-height night sights and remain adaptable to future optics releases with no requirement of direct milling of the slide.

The slide cap, for use when not shooting with an optic, has raised sight wings that protect iron sight alignment if the pistol is dropped or jostled, and provides a textured ramp for racking the slide against a belt loop, pant pocket or boot. An FN-signature 4.5-inch, cold hammer-forged, stainless-steel barrel with target crown, ½” x 28 threads that accept the bulk of 9mm suppressors available and thread cap with integrated O-ring to prevent loosening during use.

Lastly, the 24-round magazines, nearly identical in length to the pistol’s slide, maximize ammunition capacity without impacting carry convenience. FN 509 Tactical Black MSRP $1049.  These two new pistol offerings are available for purchase today through FN-authorized retailers and will be on display at the company’s 2019 SHOT Show® Booth, #13662, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 22-25, 2019.

Mossberg Celebrates 100 Years with Launch of MC1sc Handgun

In celebration of the company’s 100th Anniversary, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., is announcing the release of a full-featured, 9mm concealed carry handgun: the Mossberg MC1sc (subcompact). Coming full circle from the company’s first firearm design, called the Brownie, a 22 caliber, four-shot “pocket pistol,” Mossberg has incorporated 100 years of engineering expertise in developing this superb concealed carry handgun. The MC1sc is available in five initial 9mm offerings: the standard MC1sc and an optional cross-bolt safety version; two standard offerings with sighting systems, choose from TRUGLO Tritium Pro Night Sights or a Viridian E-Series Red Laser; and a Centennial Limited Edition with a production run limited to 1,000 commemorative models.

After 100 years in business, Mossberg has grown to be the 6th largest U.S. firearms manufacturer, and remains dedicated to innovation, with over 100 design and utility patents to its credit. The MC1sc reflects three years of development and new patent-pending ideas in combining the most highly-desired features in the subcompact market with Mossberg’s innovative approach to design. Important features in a subcompact handgun are size, weight, caliber and carryability; and the MC1sc delivers with its overall length of 6.45 inches; recoil-managing weight of 19 ounces (with empty magazine); and barrel length of 3.4 inches in the popular 9mm chambering. Other desired features include two single- stack magazines, a flush 6-round and 7-round extended; glass-reinforced polymer frame; and suggested retail price of $421 for the two standard models.

Innovation is what sets this subcompact apart from the competition. The MC1sc features Mossberg’s Clear-Count single-stack magazines. Constructed of a transparent, lubricious polymer compound, the magazines offer low friction and high wear-resistance, while providing quick at-a-glance assessment of the number and type of rounds loaded. The magazines also feature easy-to-remove floor plates and high-visibility followers. Each model comes with a flush 6-round and extended 7-round magazine. The MC1sc has the revolutionary, patent-pending Mossberg STS (Safe Takedown System), which unlike competitive products, does not require the user to pull the trigger to dissemble for routine cleaning or maintenance. Rounding out the innovative design is an aggressive patent-pending Mossberg signature grip texturing, added palm swell and grip angle (similar to a 1911) for a more confident, firm grip.   Continue reading

Faster, flatter and with high-performing bullets, .17 HMR and .22 WMR cartridges expand the capabilities of the Ruger Precision Rimfire platform.
